Q&A: Maine Senate District 11 Candidate Jayne Crosby Giles

October 8th, 2018 by admin Leave a reply »

Jayne Crosby Giles, R-Belfast: I was born in Belfast and lived in Waldo County most of my life. Professionally, I worked for 30-years as a small business lender in midcoast Maine. From 2006 to 2010 while working as a banker, I served in the Maine Legislature as the State Representative for Belfast, Belmont and Northport. More recently, I have been employed by nonprofits. From 2010-2016, I was the CEO of MaineStream Finance, a nonprofit community development bank providing loans and financial services in rural Maine. I then served as the Interim Executive Director for Broadreach Family Community Services. Today, I have my own business, Giles Consulting, offering financial and development services to nonprofit organizations.

I am running for the Waldo County Senate seat because I want to make a difference in the lives and future of our children, families and seniors. I have a lifetime of business, banking and legislative experience that I want to use to help the people of Waldo County. I am a proven advocate for Maine’s small businesses and, in 2016, was named the Financial Services Champion for Maine and New England by the US Small Business Administration (SBA). Through my volunteer work, I am a voice for our children and seniors. They are our most vulnerable and I want to do all I can to make sure families enjoy the best opportunities possible in Waldo County.
